Last week I had someone ask, “Girl, what is on your face?” In shock I began searching for the nearest place where I could view my reflection, thinking I had smeared my makeup or that something had gotten on my face unbeknownst to me. I gazed at my reflection in a glass window as the young lady touched my shoulder and said, “No, your face is beat!” We both started laughing, and I, a bit embarrassed said thank you. I told her that everything on my face could be found at a drug store, well most of it. She wanted me to write a list of the products but I handed her a business card and referred her to my blog web address. *If you are reading this… here is what’s on my face! *wink*
I always Prep + Prime my face before any makeup application. That consists of washing my face with Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst Shine Control Cleanser.
I moisturize with Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst Shine Control Moisturizer (Walmart/Target)
I prep my skin with a Milk of Magnesia mask to prevent the oilies.
The Application consisting of buffing in Revlon’s ColorStay Liquid Foundation in 400 Caramel (WalMart) with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush (Ulta.com)
Once the foundation is buffed in I set it with IMAN’s Perfect Response Oil Blotting Pressed Powder (Select Walmart locations)
I concealed under my eyes with my Coastal Scents 10-pan concealer palette but you can use any concealer that is 2 shades lighter than your normal skin tone. Concealing uner the eyes gets ride of the dark circles and brightens the under eye area. (Make sure to blend well)
I contoured the hallows of my cheeks with a darker Milani Powder Bronzer (CVS) and I highlight the top of my cheeks with a lighter Milani Baked Bronzer in 04 Glow (CVS).

On my eyes I use an NYX Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone (CherryCulture.com) all over my lid and I used my Coastal Scents Metal Mania Palette (CoastalScents.com) which consists of all shimmers and metallic and were so suitable for this look. I blended the colors well so that the look remained subtle and not too metallic. I lined and winged out my eyes with a Ruby Kisses Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black… *you can use any kind.* For mascara, my go-to HG product is always my L’Oreal Voluminious in Carbon Black. It’s the blackest of black and 2 coats give me that false eyelash appearance.
The Lips were easy. I lined my lips with a off brand fuchsia lip liner and I used a New York Color (NYC) lipstick in Blue Rose (CVS). It’s a fuchsia-colored lipstick with a blue undertone. *2 snaps and a twirl baybee*
I know, I know I seems like a lot of products but this is what I used on my face! I hope this helped in any area. Enjoy!
